Before he became Philippe Magalona, he was known as the veteran model Philippe Escalambre with the gorgeous hair. He’s re-inventing himself, this time as a Superbod. Will he make it this time?
It’s the season of beauty contests, and 22-year-old AR de la Serna is off to another underwear-and-tux show in Poland for the Mr. Supranational contest. These are the before-and-after photos, and the image on the left was taken four years ago when barely-legal AR was just emerging from all the baby fat. These days, he’s a hottie.
And just like that, some people in Indonesia declared our Mister Philippines, Karanjit Singhdole, the ultimate dude of the year. Which means he lords over the world as the epitome of masculinity in the race of man. As tribute to that wonderful win, here are some of my favorite photos of the guy, back when he was blazing through the bikini open circuit. Of course, my favorite is when he was candidate no. 40.
The main purpose of male personality contests, aside from, of course, fostering world peace, alleviating poverty, and raising awareness for HIV that is timely and relevant to our country, is to show off boys in racy-frilly speedos. Recently, a Mr. Philippines contest was held, and they had seven winners. Their names and fancy titles are as follows (l-r): Kian Sumague of San Pablo City (Mr. Tourism World), Jason Martin of Queensland, Australia (Mr. Worldwide), Christian Lumasag of Cebu City (Best Global Model of the Year), main winner Andrea Biondo of Vittoria, Italy (Mister Universal Ambassador), Job Abogado of Camarines Sur (Mr. Model International), Paul Renzo Velo of London (Mr. Tourism International), and Mark Joshua Marquez of Rome, Italy (Mr. Teen International). Who do you like?
It’s quite a treat if the man-in-swim-shorts feature has more to offer. Aside from the notable physical attributes, like decent abs, nice chest, strong legs, and other naughty bits, Mr. Philippines-International Don McGyver Cochico (yes, that’s his name, and yes, they still hold male contests like this), is also a police officer determined to make this world a safe and better place. He’s doing a good job at “better place” in those Speedos.
Our favorite police officer Mariano Flormata, Jr. is now in Seoul to compete in the Mister International pageant. Of course, he has a huge chance of getting the title, whatever that will mean to the Filipino people. As for me, it would mean more images of the sexy guy in speedos and tiny undergarments! I can’t wait!
While no one was looking late last year, Mariano’s cute runner-up in the Mister Philippines pageant, Adam Davies went to the Dominican Republic to compete in the Mister Model International 2014. Yes, bulges and cream! Our bet didn’t get left behind as he brought with him the goods! He ended up 3rd runner-up or something, and I guess that is a good thing.
Of course, he won. Police office Mariano Flormata Jr., a.k.a. Neil Perez won the title Mr. International-Philippines at a recently held contest of virile young men. He’s off to Seoul, South Korea for the Mr. International pageant next month. Okay, bring in the cops-in-erotica fantasies! I’m thinking boots and handcuffs, badges and bulges!
